The parallel park is one of the most feared manoeuvres for learners in my experience. It appears to be so simple on paper but the hard parts are knowing when to do each steer. Like everything in driving there is never a write answer for everyone. Some people use what I call 'left right right left' whilst others use 'full lock left full lock right' whilst others still just adjust as they go. The important thing is not the method you use but how its is executed. Lets have a look at one of those methods the 'LRRL' version.
